Our Mission

The Stephen Decatur Middle School 35 Arts Department strives to develop our students' creative and critical thinking through exploration of arts concepts and techniques in Visual Arts and Dance.  We seek to amplify student voice so that as artists we have the tools to confidently communicate our personal experiences and understandings of ourselves.  Through consistent practice of the arts at Stephen Decatur Middle School 35, students will affirm that their possibilities for human expression and potential are infinite in a community of lifelong learners.
